A woman’s ode to love and confusion

As a Woman
I Need a Man
Who is strong
So I will feel
Secure
But
If he is too strong
I will feel
Controlled
So
I must need a man
Who is passive
And then I will feel
In control
But
I can’t respect someone
I can control
And he will not be
Sexually attractive
To me
So
I will have to fix him
To make him strong
And sexually attractive
But
If he seems too interested
In sex
I will feel like an object
And that he only wants
My body
So
Then I will demand
Communication
But
If he is not interested
In me sexually
I will feel
Unattractive and unfeminine
So
I will demand
An erection
And
With him
As soon as I get
His permission
And as a man
He will have to
Be in charge
Of this relationship
And I will show him
How to do that
And I would like him to
Grow and change
As long as that
Doesn’t threaten
My security
And
I will try to please him
So he won’t reject me
But
My need to please him
Makes me angry
So I must reject him
And How can I respect
Someone
With such poor taste
As to like me
And
If he is not happy
I am a failure
So I must demand
That he be
Happy
And
I will never forgive him
For not
Forgiving me
But
Most of all
I want a man
To take care of
Me
But not too much.
